Lucas Maassen & Sons Furniture Factory. Lucas Maassen has employed his 3 sons, Thijme (9), Julian (7) and Maris (7). His Sons paint furniture which he builds. Due to Dutch child labour laws it is only possible for the boys to work 3 hours a week. As a result of this the production speed has became a crucial factor in the process. Time limitations are set, and contribute to the typical LM&S aesthetics.
